Siemens to Purchase ebm-papst’s Industrial Drive Technology Business

Siemens AG Acquires ebm-papst’s Industrial Drive Technology Business to Boost its Position in Flexible Production Automation Market

Siemens AG is set to acquire the industrial drive technology (IDT) business of ebm-papst, which will enhance its position as a leading provider of solutions for flexible production automation. The IDT business has approximately 650 employees and specializes in intelligent, integrated mechatronic systems in the protective extra-low voltage range and innovative motion control systems for use in driverless transport systems.

Cedrik Neike, a member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries, sees ebm-papst’s portfolio of mechatronic drive systems as a perfect fit for Siemens. The acquisition will allow Siemens to explore new opportunities in the burgeoning market for intelligent, battery-powered drive solutions in intralogistics and mobile robot solutions.

Siemens aims to expand its market reach and generate substantial business opportunities in the field of flexible and autonomous factory automation by integrating the IDT portfolio into its existing automation offerings and leveraging its global sales network. The completion of the acquisition is expected by mid-2025, pending approval from foreign trade and merger control authorities.

The products offered by IDT are designed to support automation and digitalization in production processes, making them a valuable addition to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio. As demand for mobile robots and driverless transport vehicles continues to rise, as well as the need for automation in auxiliary processes such as retooling production machines, the market for IDT products is expected to experience significant growth. This acquisition will provide a boost to both companies’ competitive positions in the marketplace while also bringing innovation to customers through better integration of technology solutions.
